If you have any old parts lying around then they will be good enough for a server. If not then you want something low-watt power saving. Dual core 2 gig ram and a ton of hard drives.

Remember the bit about power saving?

mATX mobo with onboard gfx
Low power (usually the cheapest too) AMD or intel CPU
2GB ram, you dont need speed just quantity
hard drives depending on how much data you have

My old PC that used about 100 watts idle and bout 180 gaming (Base only not the monitors) it was E5200 at 3.5ghz, 4GB, Nvidia 9800GT and 4 HDD
